I have reluctantly embraced leggings over the past few years to the point where I now own five pairs–all black. (What? They’re all different!) So when I got wind of the jeggings craze I did think ooohh…wardrobe diversity.
Even so, when I went to a fashion event at the Blogher conference recently, and had the opportunity to be fitted for a pair of Miraclebody Jeans, I was skeptical. I don’t just stick my butt out for anyone, let alone celeb stylist Robert Verdi who was doing the honors. Besides, they promise to take 10 pounds off and uh…yeah. Right.

Well crow eaten, words taken back and mea culpa, Miraclebody Jeans, because those thangs are a blessing to moms everywhere.
the stretchy waistband for a moment and the memories of 2nd trimester
jeans that they evoke and just imagine your butt really looking a whole
size smaller. In fact, I wore about 2 sizes down from what I normally
wear so if you’re between sizes I’d say go down one. The goal is for
them to be stretchy-tight anyway.
The straight-cut jeans should be pretty universally flattering, but I ended up with the jeggings.
Would I wear them with pumps as in the photo? Not on your life. High boots
all the way baby, and a trench or sweater coat to cover the butt. That’s
how I roll in these postpartum days. -Liz
